American Idol Hosts: Mariah Carey Officially Joins Up
[ Life]

American Idols hosts are dropping like flies. Both Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez have parted ways with the popular talent show, leaving fans to wonder, “Who will producers find to fill the void left by these two unexpected departures?” According to Entertainment Weekly, pop diva Mariah Carey has officially signed on for the 12th season of the popular television program. Rumors were circulating not too long ago that Carey’s price tag might dwell on the other side of the show’s budgetary limitations. However, when your most recognizable talent has jumped ship, sometimes you have to spend some money to correct that problem.

Since Carey is official onboard and Randy Jackson seems perpetually stuck to his judge’s chair (for now, anyway), the real question remains: Who will fill the third seat? Depending on which site you read and who you choose to listen to, former “American Idol” winners Carrie Underwood and Adam Lambert are being considered for the part. Should one of them decide to sign their name on the dotted line, it would be the first time a champion has returned to the show as a full-time judge. Could be a good idea. Alternatively, it could be a really lousy idea. As usual, Underwood and Lambert’s involvement is nothing more than speculation.

What do Twitter users have to say on the subject? You’re about to find out. In the space provided below, several reactions to Mariah Carey’s announcement have been embedded. Not surprisingly, fans of the micro-blogging sight have many varied opinions on the subject, so do tread carefully if you’re a diehard Mariah fanatic. We don’t want to ruffle any feathers.

Look for “American Idol” to return to FOX this fall.

    Um the only season I watched American idol Adam Lambert was on. And though I. Thought he should have won he didn’t. So technically he is not a past champion. Just saying.

    @Kathleen Raiche

    Judging from the way you mangled the English language there, I’m guessing you are 16 and not incredibly bright. How close am I?

  • kasha

    how about charly Sheen for the 3rd judge? He’d be a great addition… sugar and spice?

  • Suzanne

    IDOL IS DOOMED. WILL NOT BE WATCHING THIS YEAR. IDOL NEEDS A JUDGE WHO PUTS THE EMPHASIS ON THE CONTESTANTS. MARIAH WILL WANT ALL OF THE ATTENTION ON HER. CAN’T TAKE A FULL HOUR OF MARIAH. SHE NEEDS TO PUT SOME CLOTHES ON.DOES SHE NOT OWN ANYTHING BUT STRAPLESS CLOTHES? NOW THAT SHE IS A MOTHER,SOME MODESTY WOULD BE NICE. SHOW SOME R E S P E C T!! I WILL NOT BE WATCHING. PERIOD!!!! I WAS HOPING ARETHA FRANKLIN WOULD BE ONE OF THE JUDGES. SHE IS THE MOST QUALIFIED TO JUDGE IDOL. TOO BAD THAT DID NOT HAPPEN. I PREDICT THIS WILL BE THE LAST YEAR FOR THIS SHOW.

    Adam Lambert was not a winner…He was second place. They have not been in music business long enough. With Mariah Carry, at least there is now someone with experience enough to actually give constructive criticism.

    Bette Middler is well experienced and ugly, and would have no trouble giving criticism as no is as good as herself(in her world)So, we could have another Simon, who kept the show interesting because he was a delightful ass!

  • Pam

    I’m not a big fan of Mariah, but at least, as it should be, there is FINALLY someone in the judge’s chair who KNOWS singing. One of the best vocalists in American pop music history. Period.

  • john

    if any one need a lone of $100,000,000 to open any business of his just contant me

  • Debbie Dicksmoker

    I give amazing wet sloppy mouth jobs! I should be the 3rd judge on Idol because no one gets down on their knees and sucks prick like I do!

    • MJ

      You are a disgusting dumb pig

  • bud

    noway

  • lisaliveshere

    If they’ve got Mariah, maybe they should get Tommy Mottola. That would change the panels’ dynamic… we’d probably see more skimpy outfits but also get a glimpse of how Mariah really feels about things, especially, say, if her ex disagreed with her. That would be some good tv.

  • Chris

    Idol hosts are NOT dropping like flies. Ryan Seacrest is still hosting, as he always has

  • $NAPP$

    I believe American Idol picked the perfect replacement for Jennifer Lopez. I think she’s a great American Idol and she has the experience I think other judges have lacked and she has plenty of hits to back up her decisions. I can’t wait to get season 12 started and see how the first show goes. That will go perfect with my Auto Hop feature where I can just skip over the annoying commercials and right back to Mariah. I’m part of that group who doesn’t care for commercials, and with the Auto Hop feature is the solution. All I need to do is enable the feature once I play back my primetime recordings. One of my coworkers at Dish showed me how the Auto Hop feature works which’s my favorite feature. I mostly watch primetime shows a day after they record so it’s an excellent option for me. I’m going to be able to save some money on batteries because I no longer need to continually use the fast forward button every ten minutes.

    We need Adam Lambert. He has opinions and the women love him.
